[Amazon] US Only: Facebook Portal $99USD

Just saw this on the american AZ site, it's $300 CAD right now on the Canadian website. Worth the consideration if you have a PO Box on the border or something. Cheers.

I really can’t see myself buying one of these. This feels like Facebook moving into the tech market more and I see this product of more as a beta tbh

What's the point of this? Is it for grandparents who don't have a laptop or cell phone?

I'm all for voice assistants and IoT but Facebook is just a scummy company that had shown time and time again that they can't be trusted. At least Google and Amazon are upfront with what they do with your info

If the Portal+ were $99 I'd probably give it a try.
Yup, I would get it for my mom to call family overseas, currently gave her a tablet with just whatsApp, anyone know if WhatsApp is enabled on this this yet?? I also wish they had a physical switch cover for the camera like the Lenovo, I know my kids would lose the plastic camera cover in the first 5 minutes.
